A couple other tips for accuracy. Hold your finish until the ball lands. This improves balance which will only help accuracy. Try turning turning through the shot with your arms and body working together, not just your arms lashing away at it. And finally, stop your backswing much short of parallel to take away the temptation to rip at it as hard as possible.
I am heading to the course now and I will try that stopping backswing today. I have been "turning through the shot" lately making my arms and body work together, but have found that I do not "break my wrists" on a swing. I cannot do both for some reason. Is this incorrect or correct?
